Sergio Busquets said before leaving Camp Nou that he sees his imprint in Gabri Veiga. The 21-year-old midfielder was playing for Celta Vigo. He has been given a Wonder Kid reputation. Comparisons were being made with Real’s Fede Valverde and Barca’s Frenkie de Jong. The Spanish footballer scored 11 goals and 4 assists in 36 league matches for Celta Vigo last season. Numbers are very good for a midfielder. Europe’s top clubs have been interested in him since the January transfer window. Arsenal, Liverpool, Newcastle wanted to buy him. Barcelona fought to get him into the team.
Veiga did not go to Barcelona for various reasons. He did not go to Italy’s league champions Napoli even though he had an offer. Instead, he is joining Saudi Arabian club Al Ahli. The Saudi Pro League club is buying this youngster for 40 million euros. Negotiations for a contract with Al Ahli have been completed. All three parties have agreed to the contract in all respects. He will join the Saudi League after completing his medical soon. Neymar, Benzema, and Sadio Mane joined the Saudi Pro League this season. There are young players Ibanez and Malcolm. Still, the Saudi club’s deal with Vita is said to be the most significant of the season. Because so far most of the footballers who have gone to the Saudi league are exhausted stars. There Viagra is only the beginning.
Waiting for a call-up to the Spain national team, Veiga was seen as the country’s next big star. Several big teams were in the race to sign him this season. But in the end, the battle was narrowed down between Chelsea and Napoli. However, the reigning Serie A champions overcame Chelsea and reached a verbal agreement with Celta Vigo to sign him. Napoli is even ready for Veiga’s medical test. In the end, this deal collapsed. Celta withdrew from the agreement. The coach of the Saudi club Matthias Jaissle played an important role in this agreement. Veiga agreed to sign the contract after speaking with the coach.
